Based on photo with Putin, Trump calls Schumer 'hypocrite'

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump, his administration under siege for contacts with Russian officials, is calling for "an immediate investigation" into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's own ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump's evidence? A 14-year-old photo of Schumer and Putin holding coffee and doughnuts in a New York City gas station.

Yes because it's the same kind of evidence that they have about Sessions, a senator who happened to meet ambassadors as part of his job.

It's ok to meet with an ambassador. It's not ok to lie about it under oath.

Meeting with the Russian ambassador is not a crime, nor is having doughnuts with Putin, nor is having intimate relations with an intern. However, lying about any of those things under oath is a crime called "perjury."

Payment to Russia for hacking in US election (1/4/2017)

Of course, Russia won't do it for free. There must be a secret deal between the intelligence of the two countries. We outsiders can only see it from some facts.

The secret deal: Hacked email were handed to Wikileaks to issue to hit Hillary Clinton.

The payment of secret deal:

1. Aleppo falls (or "liberated" from Russia side) on 12/15. Resistance and civil withdraw from East Aleppo by bus. Five years fight ends. A big victory for Russia and its allies.

2. Economic interest.
Japan pledges 300 bil. yen economic package at Abe-Putin summit

December 17, 2016

The total value of Japan's contribution in investment and loans, including through agreements between private sector firms, is around 300 billion yen ($2.54 billion), Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Kotaro Nogami said after the leaders' summit.

Putin dismissed the notion that he was only interested in getting economic benefits from Japan.

"If anyone thinks we’re interested only in developing economic links and a peace deal is of secondary importance, that’s not the case," he told the same news conference. That's all for the controversial islands. He went Japan just for those business deals.


You may say that's something between Russia and Japan. The Truth is Japan is the pocket slave of the US. If you still remember Trump claims credit for $50 billion investment by Japanese firm and 7 billion from a Taiwan firm. They were puppet nations that have to pay their defense share that Trump demands. Include that payment to Russia for the US sake.

Devin Nunes is stepping aside from heading up a Russia investigation involving alleged Russian meddling in last year's election.
The Republican Party congressman is accused of disclosing classified information - which he denies.
Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington, DC.

Yeah, but the guy replacing him is just as biased towards Trump and uninterested in the law as Nunes was. This move is just a distraction.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?
